Compost

With an industrial-grade composter on campus, Gustavus is highly intentional about collecting and diverting food waste in a productive way. Food scraps, compostable utensils, compostable containers and some landscaping waste are all collected. Compost bins are readily accessible within the Jackson Campus Center and collection occurs daily during the academic year. Upon completion of the process, fresh compost is reintegrated across campus and is used both for landscaping and food production at Big Hill Farm.
